There's a small canyon in the countryside between Medias and Sibiu called Canionul Mihăileni. A river split open a hill right down the middle, creating a rift where some fossils were found. The river's no longer around. It's an interesting site and one which we tried to find one day but couldn't, because there are … Continue reading The Mihaileni Canyon
Now that winter is almost here, I thought I'd show you a few photographs from the autumn we've had this year. A few of them are from our courtyard, most are from our garden. Enjoy!

Most of them … Continue reading The Autumn of 2005
